Company Redomiciliation

Company Redomiciliation

An increasing number of jurisdictions allow for the continuation or re-domicilation of corporate entities. Overseas companies wishing to migrate to Malta and avail themselves of Malta's favourable tax system are able to be continued in Malta without any interruption of the business operations of the company.  Continuation seeks to ensure the continued existence of the same legal person. Existing offshore companies would otherwise need to be liqudated or dissolved and new companies set up in a new jurisdiction, disrupting existing business and contractual relations, with associated costs and possible loss of business.  Likewise, transaction costs and tax implications involved in the transfer of major assets may act as a barrier to moving a company's operations to a new jurisdiction.  The Maltese Companies Act allows a company to be 'redomiciled' or continued in Malta by undergoing a process of transferring the company's seat to Malta.  Effectively, this means a change in the domicile and registered address of a company incorporated outside of Malta and the adoption of a Malta registered address by undergoing the process established by law for redoms. Upon issuance of a Provisional Cerificate, the company is deemed to be validly registered as a Malta company for all purposes of law and is subject to all the obligations and capable of exercising all the powers of a company registered in Malta.
